Suprafilt contract extends key partnerships

Posted: Tuesday 11th March 2014

Aeration specialists Suprafilt have extended their successful working relationship with civil engineers JN Bentley by securing a further major contract for Severn Trent Water’s sewage treatment works at Market Drayton.

Rochdale-based Suprafilt, experts in fine bubble diffused aeration systems Suprafilt, will be upgrading an existing three-tank oxidation ditch as part of the capital maintenance scheme needed to sustain capacity at the works.

The contract, for an undisclosed amount, is due to be finished in August.

The work will involve the replacement of existing flow inducers with new nine-inch, PTFE membrane-coated disc diffusers (designed to reduce fouling), air diffusers and pipework.

It will also continue Suprafilt’s link-up with Wilo - one of the world’s leading manufacturers of pump systems for sewage disposal and wastewater treatment - as their sole UK agent for mixers and flow inducers.

The two companies are currently working on a similar project for Severn Trent at Welshpool on behalf of JN Bentley.

Suprafilt has also previously successfully completed the supply and installation of an aeration system at Mile Oak for JN Bentley, as well as working on an existing project at Strongford.

Suprafilt Sales Director Graeme Fielden is delighted to be continuing to work with the Skipton-based firm.

He said: “This is another significant contract win for us and another opportunity to build on an excellent working relationship with JN Bentley.

“The project will also see us installing energy-efficient flow inducers manufactured by Wilo as part of a preferred partner agreement which is continuing to grow and which allows us to combine expertise and resources to provide the best complete solution packages.”

A spokesperson for JN Bentley on the Market Drayton project, said: “For this scheme it was essential to find a solution which fulfilled its purpose, achieved phased programme requirements and delivered cost efficiency to meet the expectations of JN Bentley and the client.

“Suprafilt were able to offer this solution.

“Their willingness to assist, prior to contract award, with design and scope options, including the carrying out of CFD modelling, was extremely helpful in determining the most appropriate design solution.”

“Suprafilt have also previously worked with JN Bentley on a sewage treatment scheme at Mile Oak and completed their works successfully to programme and cost.”

Suprafilt’s latest contract win follows the award of a £1million contract to provide an aeration system at Rochdale’s WwTW, a £125,000 contract from Nomenca for work at Severn Trent Water’s Aslockton works and a £100,000 contract for AECOM on behalf of Thames Water at Oxford’s wastewater treatment plant.
